Surrogate and parent perspectives

This is a nice article presenting both the gestational carrier and the intended parents versions of the births of two children and the relationship between the three adults. It is interesting that the gestational carrier is compensated for her gift of carrying a pregnancy and giving birth for a couple with compensation of her wages and expenses, although it is not commercial surrogacy money is exchanged but it is a less formal transaction. It is also a good example of a surrogacy relationship in which a contract is not needed – the genetic parents do not bring up the idea of the contract or custody but I wonder what they would say about these areas in their decision making prior to starting the surrogacy process, was custody a concern?
